We are very pleased to offer this fast-offsetting crinum hybrid that was discovered by the late plant explorer, Thad Howard in Veracruz, Mexico. Thad found this plant growing in a naturalized population of the East African Crinum zeylanicum adjacent to a population of the native swamp-growing, Crinum loddigesianum (similar to Crinum americanum). Thad named it 'Marisco' (which means "seafood") to commemorate the region's seafood industry. Crinum 'Marisco' makes a relatively small (by crinum standards) 3' wide clump of 30" long strap-like green leaves. The clump is adorned sporadically through the summer with 2' tall stalks of large fragrant white flowers with each petal highlighted by a central burgundy stripe. Moist soils will produce the best flowering.
